PrizePool uses Plaid to securely link to your bank account. In the case that your bank doesn't support Plaid's instant auth functionality, Same Day Micro-deposits can be used to authenticate any bank account in the US.

Plaid will make two deposits that post within one business day (using Same Day ACH, which is roughly two days faster than the standard micro-deposit experience of two to three days). Users are instructed to manually verify the deposited amounts within one business day.

How it works:

  1. If your bank is not listed in the search functionality within Plaid, you can "Link a Bank account via Account and routing numbers"

  2. Plaid will then ask you for your routing and account number

  3. Plaid will make two deposits that post within one business day (using Same Day ACH)

  4. Once the deposits reach your account, open PrizePool to verify the deposited amounts within one business day.

  5. After verifying the deposits successfully, you can proceed to deposit and enter into the drawing!
